When Jim Taylor founded Moldworx in 1995, he planned on the specializing in mold manufacturing and repair. Eventually he realized that Moldworx would have to be more than just another moldmaking company to succeed long term. So in 2003, Taylor took on a business partner, Joe Motyka, and it was Motyka's experience and skills that added to Moldworx's ability to design and manufacture automation equipment.
They started out by building various test and holding fixtures for the parts for which he was building the molds. "The mold business is so competitive," says Taylor, who was giving PlasticsToday a tour of his facility located in Gilbert, AZ. "Then one day a customer asked me, 'can you build an assembly machine to put these two parts together?'" The rest, as they say, is history.
